Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both. Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can restore a youthful appearance and rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes.
Fewer Fine Lines
Having fewer individual lines, with the lifting of each lid many patients will show a considerable decrease in the number of lines. Receiving a Blepharoplasty can have youthful effects on the skin, similar to a chemical peel.
No More Bags
Often time-related to lack of sleep. Often appearing as dark circles around the eye. Receiving a lower eyelid lift removes those baggy areas by eliminating excess skin and tissue below the eye.
If suffering from a heavy upper eyelid which can cause drooping of the upper eyelid, it can cause some concern. The excess skin and tissue cause the eyebrow to possibly impair your visual perception. With the removal of the excess, a patient’s forehead can give a great deal of comfort due to now having to constantly raise the upper lid for proper visibility.

Postoperative pain is usually mild and relieved with oral medications. Sutures are removed within the first week of surgery. Swelling and bruising will subside in a few weeks; it is important to elevate the head while sleeping. You may resume exercise within three weeks.
Within 10 to 14 days, most people return to work or social situations and feel comfortable in public with makeup covering incision lines. Scars will be either on the inside of your eyelid or hidden in the crease and typically fade very quickly.
